PTI November Blog Hop-Tag Time!

Welcome to the November PTI Blog Hop and Happy Thanksgiving!!


Here is Nicole's challenge for this month...

"Recently the design team and I put together a variety of holiday tags that are perfect to keep on hand for quick wrap options. Now it's your turn to inspire us and the rest of the Papertrey community! Design a holiday tag or two using all of your favorite goodies and share it with all of us! We will all have plenty of inspiration to create a large stash and try to get ahead of the hustle and bustle of the season!"

Here is my blog hop creation.....

I made a tag that is the size of a regular A2 card!  This way, it works as a card, a tag and also a decoration for the gift bag!  I simply stamped white snowflakes from the 2010 Christmas Tags set using Fresh Snow ink all over the bag!  Then I made the card, punched a whole...turning it into a tag...and attached it with a piece of Sweet Blush ribbon!

The snowflakes on the tag were made using a MS punch!  Then I covered them in Zig Glue and a white glitter!  Of course, I had to add some bling!  I thought pink would be a fun color combo!

PTI's Framed set really made a fun tag!  Here is a picture of the tag off of the bag....

I scored a line at the top of the card to make it flip up and easy to read!

And here is the inside!  Just a simple To and From stamp from the Christmas tags set!  Still lots of room for a personal message! You can attach the tag to the front of the bag with glue dots, or just with the ribbon! This way the recipient can save the tag!
